Photo booths diy

Tavia, on May 24, 2022 at 1:32 PM Posted in Do It Yourself 2 32

Photo booths DIY : how do we feel about them and is anyone doing their own creation! I’m taking inspiration from a few different ones that I’ve seen! Green grass backdrop with beautiful dripping on the sides and the top but a bit sheer and also adding our neon sign that says our last name and our year of marriage on it am I missing anything to make this fun? I thought about props and also about how to secure the booth in side the barn we are using for the wedding!


Thank you for any advice in advance!

Tavia C. Chester💜💗💍💕

    I don't think it's a bad idea. but what would you be using to take the photos with? or do you mean you're just providing the backdrop and props?

    Yes we are just providing the back drop. Our photographer and videographer will be taking videos for well wishes as well as photos for people so I may share with them as well 🤗

    This is amazing! we did our own photo booth for our engagement party and will be breaking it back out at our other events. Highly recommend getting a "share the love" sign that people can put your hashtag right on. Also we loved having a fujifilm insta camera out at ours

    OMG YES! I would love to try the camera! Idea! We found our background and everything that we need to build it from Amazon and then also I found a cool local company to make our neon sign! Congrats 🎊🎈🍾🎉

    Hi Tavia, I think thats a great idea. I had my heart set on one of those Mirror Photo Booths but after getting the quotes for them to only have time for 4 hours. I'm thinking about going the DIY route too. The great thing is our Venue will take care of the backdrop so we we're thinking a greenery one with roses and the neon sign as well. We've been looking up different ideas on Pinterest too that goes with our theme Smiley smile

    I would say find a design that clicks with your theme. If anything, you could do a simple pvc pipe frame and add sheer in your wedding colors. Our wedding is at my parents' ranch, so ours it rustic/country. We are using pallets and greenery for our backdrop.

    As for props, oriental trading as some cheap prop kits, or you can make your own from cardboard and cardstock paper.

    Good luck honeySmiley heart

    I love the idea of a DIY photo booth! I found a really cool DIY on how to make your own backdrop with fencing from Lowes and vinyl tablecloths from the dollar store and that's truly what inspired my idea to do my own DIY booth. We plan on buying a couple of those instafilm cameras and a bunch of the film and letting people take pictures of themselves and each other and taking home the ones they like. I didn't think too hard about props or anything because I've always felt obligated to use the props, and its felt a little awkward. I also had an idea to set up a "memory box" next to the photo booth, so anybody that wants us to have a picture or a memory of that night, they can drop it in the box for us to look at when we're on the honeymoon.

    I love this! The memory box sounds so cool! I would love to do that! I feel like DIY is so much cheaper and better because we can get exactly what we want. Also yes I’m not sure about the props either we are going to have a grass wall with a neon sign that’s says our name and est 2023 so I may forgo and skip that part. Thank you Good luck! 💜

    Feel free to use the memory box idea! I can't take all the credit, my fiancé thought it up, he's smart sometimes lol. But either way, good luck to you as well! Its going to be such a wonderful day!
